This book uncovers a holistic sensibility in post-World War II American culture that challenged Cold War logic and fed some of the century's most powerful social movements. This impulse is illustrated by focusing on Rachel Carson; Buckminster Fuller; Martin Luther King, Jr.; Abraham Maslow; Pierre Teilhard de Chardin; and the Esalen Institute.
